In Memoriam – John Sylvester
John Sylvester, Los Altos Stage Board member for over 20 years, died at age 85 on December 4, 2021. John was a life-long jazz musician and singer, who performed in the LASC Follies fundraisers for 20 years as well. He was the Follies co-MC for most of that time, and a leading soloist, playing saxophone in the Follies band. John and his “other band,” the Jazz ConneXion, donated their time to play at all types of LASC fundraisers over the years, graciously attending various private occasions and entertaining all with their lively music and songs.
John is survived by his son Pete and daughter Jenn, his sister Ann, his niece and her sons. His contributions to the LASC were immeasurable; he will greatly missed and fondly remembered.
